10/29/09 HARVESTED AND PLOWED
I have kept you. Nothing hidden. All exposed and
washed clean. Set free. Fallow.
I saw a large field that had been harvested, plowed
clean and level.
Hos 10:12 NKJV
Sow for yourselves
righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow
ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes
and rains righteousness on you.
Every season has a purpose. Rest and enjoy. A new
season coming. Fresh planting.
Last week our yard service crew harvested our yard for
winter. In one day, all the flowers, bushes, trees and
plantings were all cut back, pruned and clean. There
are no weeds, all clean and ready for next year’s
growth. It looks simple and manicured and in order.
Seeing the fresh plowed field reminded me of Bob Jone’s
Shepherd’s Rod for this year.
QUOTE BOB JONES SHEPHERD’S
This is a year of plowing. We will either plow in peace
or in judgment but we will plow. This fire will cleanse
the land so this entire year is a preparation for
plowing the land for sowing to be fruitful next year.
2010 will be a year of sowing, but not this year. When
the ox plows, he sees nothing he can eat; he can only
see the burned off ground with no purpose. He only plows
in drudgery; but there will be no seeding or harvest
without the plowing. Intercession is the ox that will
bring the eagle, which will reveal how to pray, what to
pray for and how to get our prayers answered.
Word to ponder: FRESHLY PLOWED 10/29/09
Beloveds, in the year 2009,
the fruits of what you have nurtured in your life were
brought to the surface and exposed. I separated the
tares and harvested the good fruit. What you have gone
through is a cleansing, harvesting, and finally plowing
through many tears and prayer.
Even though you see little
color in your life right now, I see a beautiful and rich
ground that has been plowed, tilled and leveled smooth
for next year’s plantings. New gifts, new fruit, new
joys are coming. See it with My eyes, and do not let go
of hope. Every season has its purpose. Rest beloved
ones. REST. Spring is around the corner and fresh
plantings will appear with new hope for a fresh new crop
yet to come.
Jer 4:3-4 NKJV
Break up your fallow
ground, and do not sow among thorns. Circumcise
yourselves to the LORD, And take away the foreskins of
Eccl 3:2 NKJV
To everything there is a
season, a time for every purpose under heaven.... A time
to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted...
